Houston, we have a problem. It seems the latest upstream release
requires Java 8 for building JDBC 4. In Jessie even Java 6 was
sufficient. I suggest we ship version 5.1.34 of mysql-connector-java
instead, which should build fine with Java 6/7 and also fix the security
vulnerability. If there is a better way, please let me know.
